RIAD DAR TIMTAM was
built in 1876 by Mr Ali Mesfioui the justice minister of his
majesty the sultan (king) Moulay Hassan I.
In 1938, it was sold by the Mesfioui's heirs to Mr Haj Boubker
Bentaiebi nicknamed TIMTAM, one of the grandsons of a Saraghina
caid and also one of Marrakech notables businesmen. The later
has renovated it, sculpted it, and decorated it, thanks to
many Maalems of different skills who have transformed it into
a dwelling with typically prodigious Arabian Moorish style.
As a result, it has been a privileged place to welcome his
guests until his death on the 1st of May 1977.
Today, Timtam’s family has a passion to keep the spirit of
the house alive and opened it to visitors, newly converted
to a guest house in with 3 royal suites and authentic Moroccan
